Who are Metallic Nails?

Metallic Nails is a youthful Australian operated organisation that specialises in delivering high quality, stylish and modern Nail Art solutions. Our key product is the Trendy Nails Unlimited (TNU) range. A brand-new way to design stylish and eye-catching nails.

The TNU product is a pre-printed designer nail overlay, that can be applied to artificial and real nails, both finger and toes. This process offers complex, consistent designs, time after time and metallic effects unachievable through traditional nail products. There are currently close to 100 designs available with new designs released monthly and custom designs available. Take a look at our designs here.

TNU was created by Nickole Orton after many years of thought and trial put into new ways of designing stylish nails. Traditionally, Nail Technicians could spend hours creating Nail Designs by hand, with varied results. Consistency was rare, the process was time consuming, complexity was hard, and finding staff who can deliver is even harder – there had to be a better way.

In 2008, Trendy Nails Unlimited range was born. TNU has grown from a small idea in the US to become a worldwide global nail design company. The range is sold in the USA, New Zealand, Ireland, UK, Brazil, Japan, Kuwait, Croatia, Spain, Italy, Israel, Canada and many more.

Our Stunning Designs

As already mentioned, there are close to 100 designs currently available with new designs coming out monthly. The designs come in a broad range of colours and patterns, many with intricate art work or metallic finishes that would just not be possible with traditional products and tools.

The intricate designs draw the eye instantly, as this is something most people have never seen on a nail. After your first dozen or so sets, you will see a new stream of clients come through your doors as previous applications will come up over and over again in your clients conversations.

Metallic Finishes are the second aspect of the design that is new, unique and unattainable with traditional products. If you take a look under the metallic tab you will see a number of designs that are either completely metallic or have metallic elements added to the design. These will usually come in the forms of gold or silver weaved through the design. The effects of this are different to standard glitters used in traditional products. With a distinct chrome or gold finish that is highly reflective and eye catching.

Unfortunately this effect is difficult to reflect through a computer design. And when submitting our designs to the manufacturer, a grey or matt gold is used in the artwork and replaced with the quality metallic finish during production.

Who can use?

We recommend TNU be used by Nail Professionals, but since there is no specific equipment required beyond a hair dryer and gel or acrylic application products, it is possible to apply the wraps from home. But we must stress, you do this at your own risk.

Starter Kit or Training?

No. Unlike other companies, we believe in the simplistic and intuitive design of the TNU range. The product is so easy to apply, and can be done with your existing equipment that we don’t believe it would be a wise business move to cut in to the margins of our clients by charging for expensive training, equipment, or bulk contracts.
You can access our free online information on how to apply the products (more on this below). Purchase a single sheet and within a few days, be working on your first application. No waiting lists, qualification processes or hidden expenses.

Of course, if you are interested in a wholesale contract or bulk purchases, we are able to offer discounts and special agreements with our salon partners (see wholesale information below). But we want to make sure you can trial the product and see the results for yourselves for as little risk as possible.

How do I use the product?

The TNU range is a flexible product, and can be applied in a number of different ways. We have attached step by step instructions for each of the cuts that can be found here.

How to Use Instructions

How to Remove

Removing TNU wraps is very simple. The best way is to apply heat to the wrap to re-activate the adhesive and simply peel off. This can be done with a hair dryer, a heat lamp or warm water. Make sure to continually apply the heat while removing because if you forcefully remove the wrap without the heat activation, it may cause some of the adhesive to stick to the nail. This is not an issues, but will require a soak in warm water or acetone to remove.

There may be some leftovers after the removal, which can be handled with a small application of alcohol or acetone.

Applying acetone directly will also work, but will end up damaging the nail by removing some of the top layers.
